Binuclease Endonuclease; Serratia marcescens binuclease; Serratia marcescens nuclease; unrestricted endonuclease; Benzonase Nuclease
Decontaminase™ (binuclease endonuclease) is synthesized from yeast cells with cloned gene encoding genetically engineered Serratia marcescens endonuclease. Decontaminase™ is an ideal alternative to Benzonase. It digests all forms of DNA and RNA, including single and double-stranded, linear, circular, and supercoiled.
Decontaminase™ cleaves phosphodiester bond of nucleic acids. Produces 5' monophosphate terminated oligonucleotides 2-5 bases in length.
- Removes nucleic acids in biological products
- Reduces viscosity in cell lysates
- Pharmaceutical industry: eliminate nucleic acid contamination in vaccines and proteins
- Bioanalytical applications: ELISA sample preparation, chromatography, two-dimensional electrophoresis (protein mapping), and footprint analysis for improved resolution and increased sample recovery.
